Hands down my best purchase! 'My First 500 Korean Words' has been easily my favorite purchase from TTMIK so far. I have the first two levels and accompanying workbooks, as well as 'My Weekly Vocabulary', which have all been extremely helpful. This book however is the most enjoyable kind of daily study I have tried so far. It's very straightforward and easy to accomplish each day. The method of reading a story and then doing the activities after has been sooo incredibly helpful in learning and retaining my new vocab. I've also found my reading and comprehension in hangul to be getting much faster because of the daily use of this book. The tests also give me a reason to go back and review previous days lessons and when I ace the test its incredibly motivating. There are some days where I want to do many lessons at once because its that addicting to study with this book. I have recommended this to quite a few people already and will continue to. This book is so good and I will be so sad when ive finished it (almost there!) I would love another installment of this series. I'd buy it in a heartbeat! Thanks TTMIK!!

Undoubtedly the best vocab book I've ever bought and my best buy in TTMIK in general!! The little stories and the exercises afterwards make it incredibly easy to remember the words given, which I wasn't able to remember before. Plus, there are grammar points explained in short at the intro so if there's anything you don't understand in the Korean translation, you can quickly look it up! It's a pity it's only 500 words. I would buy the next level without a second's thought if it ever came out!

This, along with Real-life Conversations, has been the backbone of my venture into Korean, the venture from which I have slowly, but surely, and with enjoyment, added to my Korean comprehension. The voices are all easy on the ears and the sound lively and real, unlke manyh of the other robotic audio files out there. TTMIK is responsible for my continuing with my Korean language learning, something that actually started on a whim and my first trip to Korea in April. Now, I look forward to be able to say more than "Anyeong!" on my next trip to Korea. This book has taught me SO much...and I'm only a fraction of the way through it. Thank you!

This book is an excellent companion for anyone learning to speak Korean at any level. It is really more than just a vocabulary boost because the daily lessons go beyond the ten words for the day. And as you go along, you'll see how the words and phrases are strategically designed for progressive learning, not just in terms of vocabulary but for sentence building as well. Honestly, this book made me more excited to learn the language more. A massive plus is that it is so incredibly cute.
